  • How to fly drones for journalism in the U.S.
    About six months ago, we bought a drone to help us cover stories at the Yakima Herald-Republic, a daily newspaper in Yakima, Washington.

    We in the media love nicknames for notorious people. Often, these names are associated with a place or thing that has a random connection, like The Boston Strangler, The Green River Killer or The San Bernardino Shooters. This time it's "The Facebook killer," the shorthand description for the actions of Steve Stephens, who killed an […]
  • One last lesson from Don Murray, America’s greatest writing coach

Summer 2014: Comings and Goings
Written by Josh Cradduck

Here is a brief look at some of the Comings and Goings from early-summer so far:

 

 

 

Congratulations to CNY-Central reporter KATIE CORRADO, who just headed to Connecticut to become FOXCT's weekend morning anchor/weekday morning reporter. Katie has been with the Syracuse NBC affiliate for two years. 

 

A big congratulations to CNY Central's BRIAN ERB, who has after 42 years at the station. Brian started at the NBC affiliate in November of 1971, making him one of the longest-serving photographers in the Syracuse market. We're told his retirement plans are to “kick back and enjoy his grandchildren.” Brian has been honored with dozens of awards over the years, including SPC Career Achievement in 2002.

 

Another veteran is leaving the media scene in CNY.  JOHN MARIANI has retired from the Post-Standard/Syracuse Media Group after a 32-year career. His long stint at the paper included reporting on government, neighborhoods, politics and business, as well as editing NewsLine.

Wall of Distinction

The Syracuse press Club would like to send its condolences to the family of long-time channel 3 and WSYR radio reporter Jerry Barsha.  Barsha died September 10th at the Cleveland Clinic where he was undergoing treatment. He was 83.

Funeral services will be Tuesday at the Sisskind Funeral Chapel at 3175 East Genesee Street, Syracuse at 11am. Calling hours will immediately precede the services at the funeral home beginning at 10 am.

Jerry was a native of Brooklyn, who like many central New York broadcasters settled in the Syracuse area after attending and graduating Syracuse University.   Jerry's career at what was then WSYR-TV 3 and WSYR Radio began in 1957, where he worked in both radio and television news. Jerry worked for 32 years at the station before retiring.  He also taught for 35 years at Onondaga Community College.  Jerry was a Syracuse Press Club Wall of Distinction honoree and a winner of the club's lifetime achievement award. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Martha, four daughters, and six grandchildren.
